Hi there! I’m Maggie and I founded Mill City Creative in 2016. I began my career as a morning TV news producer. But in my free time, I’d snap open my laptop to follow my true passion: writing. I published my first short story when I was four called, The Squirrel (I dictated words to my dad who diligently typed them on our family PC, the Amiga). I’ve been writing ever since.
When my husband and I had our first baby, I dreamed of spending my days peacefully wearing him in the Ergobaby carrier, while sipping hot tea, sitting in a house smelling like lavender-lit candles and writing at my desk made of reclaimed wood. Fast-forward a few years and a few more babies and I’ve changed my tune. Just a bit. I’ve learned that life is messy and crazy and busy. But, I’ve also learned (and am still learning!) how to live my life by design, not default.
